The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that Nigerians have lost confidence in Nigeria election because their votes no longer count.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan stated this on Saturday at his country home of Kabba, headquarters of Kabba/Bunu council area of Kogi state.

Ologbondiyan who decried the low turnout of voters for the governorship and Houses of Assembly elections, ascribed the development to the overbearing manners of the ruling APC government on the electoral umpire and the electoral system.

He said reports across the states showed that the processes were marred with violence and irregularities and does not conform with due process of the electoral processes.

“Election in Kogi was full of violence and intimidations amidst destruction of ballot boxes. Election was suspended in Mopamuro local government area, there are report of people using fake PVC. The APC are suppressing PDP in Kwara, there are manifestations of militarization of election in Rivers and Akwa Ibom state.

“The above scenarios has dampened the spirits of Nigerians who have lost confidence in the electoral process knowing well that their votes will not count, coupled with the huge compromise across the states by INEC,” he said.

Ologbondiyan however said the party will study the total outcome of the elections and make their position known afterwards.
